BISHKEK, May 28 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said he is concerned about the decreasing trade turnover with Tajikistan. "We've noticed an alarming point when trade turnover decreased - though slightly - last year," Putin said at a meeting with his Tajik colleague Emomali Rakhmon on Tuesday.
Putin said "everything can be rectified; we'll certainly reverse the situation." He suggested analyzing the situation to "find the reasons, eliminate them, and move on."
The Russian president said Russia remained the key investor in the Tajik economy.
Rakhmon agreed that the situation in the trade and economic sphere required the presidents’ attention; he also offered to discuss "security issues, in the first place in Central Asia in connection with the upcoming withdrawal of antiterrorist forces from Afghanistan."
"We're very concerned about the issue," the Tajik president acknowledged. He called upon Russia for paying more attention to cooperation on southern borders.
